The Photographer

Hi, I'm Sena! I am a Vancouver based photographer but I was born and raised in Quebec. I have always loved art but never really felt like I was competent enough at any form I tried. I'm never satisfied with my drawings or paintings, my sculpture is full of my finger prints, and I just don't have the patience for crafts. 

I discovered photography through photographing my dog and some of the nature from my hikes. I quickly realized that I had a keen eye for detail and a strong passion for photography. One day I decided to make the jump into photographing people. 

I love how I can capture emotions for a lifetime with the click of a button. Photography has brought me so much joy and introduced me to so many incredible people. I absolutely love what I do! 

What sets you apart from other photographers?
1. I believe that having good quality photos shouldn't be a luxury that breaks the bank. Everyone deserves to preserve their most cherished moments through the art of photography. It is for this reason that I strive to keep my costs as affordable as I can for my clients. I want my services to fit your budget. 
2. I love colours! Many photographers these days are muting their colours during the editing process but that's just not my cup of tea. I'm bright and loud.
What do you do for fun?
I'm a dog mom to a rescue Aussie mutt whom I absolutely adore! We do a lot of trick training and explore the Pacific Northwest together. I'm also low key obsessed with taking photos of my dog. I'm a runner so I love to run along the sea wall in Stanley Park. I also love to travel - especially road trips! And when I'm not outside, you can find me in bed binging pretty much any TV show because I am a huge lover of the tele. Sometimes I read books.

When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them.

Did you study photography?
Nope. I have a BSc with Major in Biology and Minor in Psychology from the University of Ottawa and I am currently completing my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology at Adler University. Having a background in Psychology actually comes in quite handy when trying to capture feelings!
I learned photography through lots of trial-and-error, online courses and youtube tutorials, and by asking questions to my wonderful community of photographers.
What can we expect from you?
I can tell you what you can't expect from me, and that's a series of perfectly posed photos. While these may look nice in the magazines, they just don't inspire me. Although there are some classic poses that every person/couple should try out, for the most part, I will be working on capturing you in the moment. I want genuine emotion. Authenticity. Not uncomfortable, is-this-almost-over faces. So tell me a funny story, laugh a little, let loose and feel what you need to feel in the moment and I'll take care of the rest!
Are you available to travel?
If you're able to fund my travels, I will find a way to get there! Although destination weddings pose a challenge for poor guests (aka me), I have to admit that I really love them. As a matter of fact, all of the photos on this page are from a destination wedding in Punta Cana.
What kind of equipment do you use?
At the moment, I am shooting with a Canon EOS 7D Mark i, an older yet excellent professional level DSLR, and my favourite portrait lens, the Canon 50mm f/1.4. That's it. What can I say, I'm simple girl. 
Which Harry Potter house do you belong to?
I would give anything to belong to Gryffindor but I'm not brave at all. I'm terrified of heights, I don't take many risks, and I'm careful and tentative. I'm extremely clever and use my brain to my advantage. I love math, Sci-Fi shows and movies, and crime investigation. I have a creative side that I love to tap into when I do photography and I can be quite sarcastic. I clearly belong to Ravenclaw. I sincerely hope this is not a deal breaker for you!

Think we'd be a good fit?
